Jared Leto’s Joker to get a standalone movie, say reports

WB Developing Spin Off Movie for Jared Leto's Joker

"I'm a little confused too, but yeah, there are a couple of things happening in the DC world", Leto previously told Variety about the plans for a separate Joker film.

Variety also reports that Leto and Warner Bros. are now looking for a screenwriter for the prospective film. In addition to the impending Suicide Squad 2 with director Gavin O'Connor, a "Mad Love" style movie with Harley and Joker is also in development.

According to a new report, Warner Bros. and DC Films are looking to expand upon the Suicide Squad characters for the future, which already includes projects for Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Birds of Prey and now Leto's own standalone Joker film.

Jared Leto could reprise his Joker role from Suicide Squad with a standalone movie.

However, without a writer on board at this time, it is unclear when the flick would begin shooting, or whether it would be shot before the Suicide Squad sequel, which is expected to go into production sometime in 2019.

There has been no update on Ben Affleck's solo Batman movie, to be directed by Matt Reeves.

While the debate over whether it's worth getting two Joker movies, let alone one, will rumble on, it appears that DC are finally going all-in on Jared Leto's Joker after a tepid reaction to his debut.

The second film reportedly has Joaquin Phoenix attached to star and will fall under an Origins banner.

Leto was most recently seen in "Blade Runner: 2049" and Netflix's "The Outsider".

Plot details are now unknown, but the studio's idea is to expand on the world created by "Suicide Squad" and tie into future installments of that property.
